This A.A.T trip actually took place about a month ago, at the peak of moving stress when I wasn't sure we were going to be able to get a place without a cosigner, but we managed! Actually after this adventure I got a call from the apartment people telling me that we could move forward, we would just have to pay a lot more.
I felt about 1000x better after my wandering.
|This is my bff, Kili. He was going to come to the movie with me, but I had to go there straight from work.|
For example, Venus Flytraps ONLY grow natively about 60 or 75 miles around Wilmington. This explains our giant Venus Flytrap statue found downtown. I didn't expect to see many, it being the dead of winter and all, but there were none! I later saw signs warning people about a Flytrap Poacher. When I got home, I looked it up and my local newspaper reported that over 1,000 were stolen, with a market value of $20,000!
That's your depressing fact for the day, but I assure you the trip was fun in spite of it! I took loads of pictures, and the hike lasted about 4 hours!
|Deer print! I didn't find any in the flesh though.|
|This is Reindeer Moss, which is a misnomer, cause its actually a lichen.|
|This stuff was everywhere!|
|Awww there were a bunch of these baby pine trees, they look like Truffula trees(from The Lorax)|
|Perfect place to take a rest.|
|I found a Weirwood in my journeying. I was hoping for an Ent, or hoping to find an Ent Wife.|
|We had arrived.|
|Saw some baby crabs, but they were too quick to photograph.|
|I think this is my favorite image.|
I hope you guys are excited for Tuesday! I have a wonderfully useful tutorial coming.
Til Next Time,
